WAFA reported, PM Shtayyeh said that at a meeting with ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference 2020 on Saturday.

He urged especially after the ICC Chief Prosecutor announced in December 2019 to conduct an investigation.

He also rejected all attempts to politicize the work of the ICC, calling for the protection of the international justice system from pressure put into practice by some countries aimed at obstructing the duties of the court.
